Domestic Intelligence resumed. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 March 1827

*'Domestic Inte:ligence resumed. CAPTAINy FARMER, of the Mary lHope, speaks in the .highest terms of the.extremely gentlemanly behaviour of Sir-Thomas Brisbane, during the whole of their pas sage home. He says the General was not only happy himself, but by his most, affable behaviour made all bhappy in the ship. Yet with all his urbuanity, Capt. F. observed he never seemed for a moment to; forget thst dignity'hich,e oupled with condescension and kindness. constitutes the true gentleman.' Sir Thomas .often spoke'of the handsome manner in which the colonists took their leave of him-he declared, that to proinote the interests of New South "Wales, would be a steady principle and feeling of his heart so long as.he breathed. The kindness.of the colonists would never be forgotten by him. . (The Captain says the manner in which Sir Thomas mentioned this' subject, always evinced the deepest gratitude to the colonists.)"

WE.LLINGTON BREWERY. PAYNE'S COLONIAL 'BEER. T HE decided preference hitherto given to this article by a liberal and discriminating Public, whereby a consump tion far superior to that of all the other* Breweries in the ?Igony put together has always been secured to it, renders it unnecessary to resort to extraordinary measures in order to enhance its value. The proprietor, thereforc, in notifying a reduction of Ten Shillings per Hogshead, to take etfect from this Date, will only say that the quality of .the Article shall remain unchanged, notwithstanding the reduction in the price. PAYNE'S FINE COLONIAL BROWN STOUT. THIs Article is now nearly ready for delivery-a week or ten (lays will be sufficient to mature it, and, after that period, the public can be supplied, at the rate of Five Pounds per Hogshead, with a strong and wholesome Beverage, such as the Proprietor flatters himself, will render the importation of London Porter hereafter-unnecessary.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 30 March 1827

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE.   WE are happy to learn that that true patriot of Aus- tralia, Mr. Cunningham, the King's Botanist, is about to resume his discoveries of the interior Westward and Northward. We read. with intense interest his last ex- pedition to Liverpool Plains. We sincerely wish Mr. C. all the success and fame his solitary and unproclaimed labours merit. We trust his name will be done more justice to by posterity than the present generation is likely to do to it. Mr. Oxley did much—even his exer- tions and privations met with no very abundant recom- pense. Mr. O. discovered inland waters of necessarily immense extent. This was a great and most interesting discovery. We wish Mr. C. or whoever makes the noble attempt, will authenticate some important particu- lars respecting the æquora incognita which exist in some grand form or other in the vast interior of Australia. THERE is some talk of the Australian Agricultural, Company intending to open Coal Mines in the...

To THE EDITOR 'O THI) MONITOR. SlaR; SCoNaIszNCY's Letter in the A TRAI.rAN: of TeIday ' censuring Mr. Pearson for presuiaption, would be just if t. acU. - sation set down were true. We believe Mr. P. however to be quite incapable of the deed- there attributed to him. The factid, Mr. Edwards, after devoting many months to the training of the St. James's Choir, gratis, ascertained that his serviea were not duly appreciated by the Clerlcil Authorities, and. accordingly, with a just regard to his own feelingp and independence, he withdrew ttis professional aid. The Choir; had no Leadpr for some ,wooths. Mr. SPeani'son'ten offered his services, and they wete accepted, but we have been given to understatt4chiefly on the ground of his taking' the trouble not only to practise the Choir on week-days, but also to lead them in person on Sundays, both morning and evening.

To TICt EDITOR OF THE MONITOR.i . wi I hapl.ened to be present at the late trial of an action which was some time since commenced in the Supreme Court by the late Attorney General, Mr. Bannister, against Dr. Wardell, as the Proprietor of The Australian, for a libel on him, Mr. Bannister, and which was conducted by Mr. Norton on the part of the Plaintiff. Mr A. E. Hayes, formerly a Clerk in. tlie Australian Newspaper Office, subsequently Pur ser's Clerk on board*His Majesty's Ship Fly, and now again Clerk in the Office of the Australian, was called upon by the Plaintiff to prove the Proprietorship of the Paper. As this witness assumes the name and character of a gentlemafl, it is somewhat extraordinary that he was so little entrusted by the Defendant, as' to be unacquainted with this circum. stance. Mr. Norton, in common with other persons in Court, thought it unaccountable that Mr. Hayes should be ignorant of the fact, and made some observations in' consequence these observations it...

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 6 April 1827

ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. ,TLIjEL.-An opinion given some time since by Judge :Burroughs on the law of Libel, is diametrically opposed to the text of Lord Mansfield, the latter having said, ,'the greater the truth, the greater the Libel," the for 7*er that " its Truth is a great extenuation of its:fault.,. The statement in the Morning Chronicle respecting Sir Walter Scott's marriage is altogether premature. The story is said to have.originated in a joke of Mr. Jeffrey, who, as a match-maker, is said to have expressed an opinion that Sir Walter should marry either Mrs. Coutts or Miss Bruce. This proposal, in being repeated, was metamorphosed into the complete rounded-off fiction, against which heither the London nor the provincial pa pers can always guard.

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 6 April 1827

TI I IMONITOR. ' ' FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 1827. • ' ? 11 . . . ?'? ' ' - " CONSISTENCY of conduct is a most pleasing quality of mind. In the language of the Hebrew poet, it is like unto " a lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument." Incongruous, unsteady, and unequable behaviour, on the other hand, is proportionably discordant. To a sound judgment and rectified heart, it is painful to contem plate.it. The clangings of barbarous music are not niore grating to a refined ear, than this sort of conduct in any men, but especially in those who by their public preten sions, and as teachers of the multitude, lead us to expect and .demand of them better things. If the Australian newspaper be remarkable for one quality more than another, it is for the bitterness--the unrelenting bitter terness of its personal vituperations. The Australian is not . contented with killing its prey, but it tears and mangles it after it is dead.- If any one doubt this, let him r...
